Rep Geiss Reads to Wick

Rep Geiss March 2017

As a part of the celebration of March as Reading Month, State Representative Erika Geiss recently stopped by Wick Elementary to read to both classes of first graders. Representative Geiss read the book “I’m New Here” during her visit, and took questions from the students about the story as well as her job as an elected official.

Wick Celebrates Black History Month

Wick Elementary’s annual Black History Month program was held on Friday, February 24, 2017. This year in addition to the assembly, classes also welcomed parents into their rooms with presentations that connected various aspects of Black History to Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (S.T.E.A.M.) components. Following the assembly and class presentations, parents and students enjoyed a Soul Food Luncheon in the gymnasium.

Dinner with Dads

On Friday, October 7, 2016 Wick Elementary hosted “Dinner with Dads” in an effort to get fathers and father-figures to participate in the school’s Watch DOGS (Dads Of Great Students) program. The Watch DOGS program is a school-based, father involvement initiative that works to support education and safety in the school. Watch DOGS include fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles, and other father figures who volunteer to serve at least one day per school year in a variety of school day activities.

Muffins for Moms

The Wick School community held a breakfast on Friday, September 23 to recognize our students’ mothers. Students along with their moms enjoyed muffins, fruits and beverages before the school day began. This annual event at Wick allows an opportunity for a positive connection between parents and the school shortly after the beginning of each school year. In addition, this morning gave moms the chance to socialize with one another and staff members.
